Problem installing smb4k

Postby axel668 » Sun Oct 11, 2009 20:22

Hi there :)
Using Sabayon 5.o for a week (yay !) and have a problem installing smb4k - as it's not in Sulfur, I'm trying Porthole to "emerge" it (managed with some other packages). Now with smb4k (which is for me the only known way to connect to a harddisk attached to my Belkin WLAN router), I'm getting the following error log:

Code: Select all
000001 *** emerge --nospinner net-misc/smb4k ***

Removing samba client is out of the question, because this will remove important stuff from kdebase (startkde script). Anyone managed to install smb4k in Sabayon 5 ? How did you do it ? Any help would be appreciated !

I believe your issue is not samba-client but mount-cifs. Removing that will allow you to continue your emerge.

Hi xlnagla !

Thanks for the answer. But actually smb4k seems to depend on mount-cifs. I managed to emerge it using the "--nodeps" option, but when trying to connect to my router it fails with a "mount-cifs failed" error. (same configuration working like a charm in Ubuntu Jaunty).

So my problem seems to be rather, how to install mount-cifs without having to uninstall samba-client.

Best regards,
Baby Hen
